Editorial Reviews

Review

"An enthralling debut." -- Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

"A vibrant and powerful debut.", Seattle Times

"Winner of the Harvill Secker Daily Telegraph crime writing competition, this stirring, entertaining first mystery bursts with lively, colorful historical details about colonial Calcutta. The developing relationship between Wyndham and Banerjee is a delight. A fine start to a new crime series that will attract readers of M.J. Carter and Tarquin Hall.", Library Journal (starred and Debut of the Month)

"British author Mukherjee’s outstanding debut and series launch combines a cleverly constructed whodunit with an unusual locale—Calcutta in 1919—portrayed with convincing detail. The nuanced relationship between Wyndham and his Indian assistant adds even more depth. ", Publishers Weekly (starred)

"This checks pretty much every box in our ‘should we read this mystery?’ checklist. First, it launches a new series. Second, it's set in the past in another country, in this case Calcutta in 1919. Third, it was a hit overseas (in London). Fourth, the trades (Publishers WeeklyLibrary Journal, etc.) have praised it. Fifth, is enjoying enthusiastic support from early readers. Sixth (and this is a new one for us), it features a character known as ‘No Surrender’ Banerjee, which seals the deal.", BookFilter

"A marvelous new historical crime series. ", Book Riot

"The novel is filled with fascinating historical detail, intriguing crime, and a minefield of political pitfalls the characters must navigate. Both Sam Wyndham and Surrender-not Banerjee are two creatively developed characters who are more than capable of carrying readers through Calcutta for many books to come.", Criminal Element

"A crime novel that is, quite simply, enormous fun. Wyndham’s next assignment can’t come soon enough.", The National (Abu Dhabi)

"With a sly authorial wit, quirky characters, and historical details that anchor the story to its steamy, exotic locale, this debut novel is the first in what looks to be an entertaining new series similar to Barbara Cleverly’s Detective Joe Sandilands mysteries (especially The Damascened Blade, 2004).", Booklist

"[A] splendid debut...and his hero, Captain Sam Wyndham, is a winning creation.", The Times (London), Crime Book of the Month

5.0 out of 5 stars A great summer read. Easy to read and unpretentious. Most will enjoy this if any vague love of Indian history exists with them.
